Monica, show notes and support

photoMonica is the latest member of the Paleo Parents Team! Raised in a full-on hippy house, she was taught to love the land and the animals that feed from it. From old school hog butcherings to berry farm harvesting treks, her parents showed that health began with food choices. However, her teen years brought her down a rebellious path with food and she began to struggle with the world of weight-gain, yo-yo diets, and eating in secret. It wasn’t until her husband nudged her in the direction of the Primal Blueprint that she learned how to break my unhealthy cycle.

Now she is carving out her own hippy life and learning how to raise a paleo family in our modern-day grain and sugar crazed world. Monica can be found at thepaleos.com as well as Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Hi Sarah,

I’m transitioning my 3 year old son over to the autoimmune protocol. it’s been going well. Are fruits allowed? Are there any baked goods that I could make for him??? I used to make these fabulous rolls with tapioca and quinoa flour, eggless….( he tolerates very dark chocolate well), also how crazy do I go with spices in foods… I found organic hotdogs with paprika in it.., what about keychup from red ripe tomatoes?

i am really enjoying your website and I got very inspired by seeing the pictures of the lunches that you packed for your daughter.

Dinner tonight was organic kale chips, organic cauliflower, organic Japanese sweet potatoe crispy sliced, organic sloppy joes and sliced tomato and sauerkraut for me and my husband. My kids are so far on board except for my son’s craving for rice chex…

thanks for your fabulous website

On a side note,
is there anyone out there who has had success with naturally treating enlarged adenoids?

If he tolerates dark chocolate, I have a recipe for decadent double chocolate cookies that are egg-free and nut-free that you could make for him. Fruit should be okay. I would stay away from ketchup and paprika though, at least at first (once you see I provement, the you can try some nightshades, and I would try paprika before tomatoes).

I see that dark chocolates all have emulsifiers in them, sometimes soy lecithins or other lecithins. I can’t seem to find any without these, even 90% chocolate. I guess I can never reintroduce this lovely food? 🙁

I’m back and forth between paleo and AIP. I took an allergy/sensitivity test and found out I’m allergic to yeast (bakers and brewers). I’m told I should be drinking kombucha, but is this really a good idea?

Hi! Have your books, love the pod cast! My daughter (15) and I (50) have Hashimotos. I moved the whole family to Gluten Free 6 months ago ( I have been for 1.5 years). I was diagnosed right after my first pregnancy. My daughter has three other autoimmune issues (Vitiligo, alopecia and skin dermatitis on her feet). She is one of the rare people born with the vitiligo. Lyme disease triggered the Hashimotos and a second case of lyme triggered the Alopecia. I have listened to the Hashimotos Institute webinar (loved your spot in it) and have read many diet/health books over the years. Right now I have two concerns that maybe you can help me with: 1) How do you tease out perimenopause symptoms (hot flashes, headaches, irritability) when trying to determine food sensitivities – and can paleo/AIP help with menopause symptoms? 2) I KNOW my daughter needs to be on AIP. I am trying to slowly transition her but GF was hard enough for her. Her Endocrinologist (prestigious hospital in Boston) will not work with me re diet, gluten, leaky gut etc. Thinks I’m off my rocker. What can you suggest? I have looked up functional medical doctors and there are a few – just not sure if they are reputable.

By the way – my family uses the term “Soup To Nuts” all the time – not weird. (Episode 40)

Paleo/AIP can help balance hormones, which can make menopause a little more comfortable. Telling symptoms apart is just one of those things that takes some trial and error. Sarah has consultants available at ThePaleoMomConsulting.com and also recommends primaldocs.com and paleophysiciansnetwork.come for finding qualified practitioners. – Christina, Sarah’s assistant

My mom was told to cut down on all protein because she has gout. I have been trying to get her to eat less carbs and MORE proteins.

You seemed pretty adamant when you said you do not take flax oil. I was just about to start my wife (who has ovarian cancer) on the Budwig protocol which uses quite a lot of flax oil and ground flax seeds.(so does the Gerson protocol) It seems to me that this would allow the body to produce DHA and EPA in the proper proportions. The Budwig protocol seems to have helped and even cured many people so I’m thinking flax is a good thing. What is your reasoning?
